Being an undergraduate intern here at the ACLU of Michigan is a dream. Sometimes I spend my days doing small tasks like working with spreadsheets, and sometimes I spend my day in Lansing attending House Committee hearings.
The legal process of addressing and holding as unconstitutional same sex marriage bans in the remaining 33 prohibition states continued to unfold in Detroit this week with the commencement of the trial in DeBoer v. Snyder.
At the playground, three-year-old Olivia sang to herself as her brother Stuart played on the monkey bars with a crowd of other little boys. It was a sweet, everyday moment with my best friend’s family.

The first few days of the much-anticipated DeBoer trial started out strong in favor of the quality, competence and power of LGBT families.
